Hello -

Please refresh my memory. Are there any performance issues that should be considered when defining a SP which contains a field from within a PE?


I don’t think you’ll see a performance hit from an Adabas point of view.

On the programming side, consider that you can’t issue a READ against such a superdescriptor. You could simulate a READ with a HISTOGRAM/FIND combination, but, obviously, this requires additional Adabas commands.

If processing large volumes of data, there could be a performance hit from using FINDs (as compared to READs), with Adabas processing large ISN lists from its WORK dataset.
